I always wanted to play this game back when it came out. The premise interested me and so did the opening video. Will be playing this Smile

For a second I thought Makoto Shinkai made the opening movie again like ef. Seems not, but still, very impressive opening movie. I'm gonna purchase it asap

The company is now accepting preorders for its first adult boys-love visual novel No, Thank You!!! by pa-rade. A demo version was released in November.


Wait wait what?? Official, legal, English-language release of a BL game?! How the hell did I miss that news when it first came out?? I feel as though I have failed in my duties as a fujoshi...

...So needless to say, I am totally going to be putting down a preorder for it. Smile

FYI MangaGamer has an ongoing fundraising project for Supipara:
http://www.mangagamer.org/minori/

All purchases of eden*, ef - a fairy tale of the two, ef - the first tale, ef - the latter tale, whether all-ages or adult version automatically contributes to the fund.

No Thank You was pretty interesting, though I wish I played it in the order the creators intended (for more of a slow reveal of the main plot), and I didn't expect it to be this violent. Looking forward to the OVA.

To be specific, Eden* is a kinetic novel, meaning there's no branching choices and thus only one route. Anyone who's played Key's Planetarian should be familiar with the concept.

So rather than a "visual novel" per se, it is more like a vomic or an interactive book?
While those kinds of narratives can be interesting, my Diminished Returns standards are quite high, meaning that I rarely play though a game again (at least not so soon after completing it).

Considering that a lot of visual novel-based anime do somewhat the "Choose Your Own Ship" feature (a few episodes focusing each of the possible lovers), I don't see a kinetic novel getting an anime version soon.
